by some now is not the time to raise taxes, yet the house budget cannot produce spending bills from the appropriations committee that can actually pass on the house floor. in some cases, they appear to not even be able to pass from subcommittee. all the while we're looking at a sea of unmet needs and face a floundering economy. there is one area that can help break the logjam, not solve all our problems, certainly, but help us significantly along the way. congress should address the critical needs of our nation's infrastructure deficit. roads, bridges, transit systems are all increasingly at risk. we are facing an inadequate state of repair, construction of new facilities are on hold and we are losing ground in meeting our own needs, let alone the challenges of global competition. yet, this challenge is an opportunity for some potential progress. we know what to do to meet this challenge. we can write a new transportation bill that will meet today's needs. it just needs more money. there is a vast coalition that supports additional resources for infrastructure. the so-called special

top an elaborate tax regime had a was aimed at extracting as much money from aid agencies as possible. there were fees that aid agencies were forced to pay. it ranged from $500 to $10,000 in some cases. and there were additional taxes levied on aid agencies. they ranged from individual projects. at the same time al-shabaab was able to apply a robust monitoring and supervising of aid agencies where they recruited recipients of aid to report on humanitarian workers. in the end one could argue that these activity versus saved lives on the part of humanitarian workers, but at the same time it became a source of revenue for al-shabaab. >> so what are you recommending from this report, from your research. >> reporter: well, one of the challenges that aid agencies face are the laws and counter terrorism regimes that exist in the west. if they're exposed they could be prosecuted for this. one of the recommendations in the report there needs to be a conversation about the intent of these laws. the intent of these laws was not to starve people to death. obviously it was to make sure money does

talk about, tax, regulations. so talk about what you're hearing on the hill, what you're hearing at the white house. is there a chance to pass minimum wage nationally even through the senate? >> the minimum wage talk -- you hear that much more to the side than the unemployment insurance. steve and his chart noted minimum wage hiked in bush years 2007 the country had not gone through a recession and things were looking good. it took a huge amount of capital from the senators. ted kennedy keys speech pushed the bill over the top. i don't hear much talk or optimism that we're going to get a hike to $10.10. in fact you hear more skepticism about that. with respect to unemployment insurance, you're starting to see the debate heat up in part because it comes at a cruel time. it would be right after christmas, december 28th. you have about 1.3 million people losing benefits. the question is how do you pay for it. right now the cost is about $25 billion so these budget negotiations that are happening right now they are trying to figure out if they can find money to pay for that $25 billi

jobs are fine. the way to get it working again is to lower taxes. increase domestic energy production and that policy could really be revamped. it's really a shame. workers are poised to create a lot of new jobs. they have the capital to do so. the number one reason they're not doing it is because of the obama care mess. they'll have a wait and see attitude, see if they'll add workers full time or hire new workers and actually quite the opposite, laying people off and keeping them below full time until this obama care problem is solved. >> i'm going to give you a moment to respond there. let me jump in there. where rick leaves off. of course we know a steady climb in employment is better than being stagnant. apart from what rick is considering obama care as a blocker, what would you say are some of the blockers that are preventing more robust job growth to the point where we have that happy days are here feeling that permeates the air? >> i don't think obama care is the thing that is doing it because frankly i think most larger groups, corporations actually provide health care. i thin

policies, such as raising taxes on the rich and increasing spending on the poor have contributed to the income divide? >> yeah, it sure does, greg. what's interesting, you just nailed it. if you look at the sideways in america since at least the 1960s, it has always been the case in america and still i believe today that anyone can succeed in this country, and the president was essentially saying if you grow up poor in america today, you can't get rich, which is contrary to what the american dream is all about. and what is interesting about this issue of income disparity is that what happened in the '80s and '90s especially under president reagan, a republican, and president clinton, a democrat, we had rising mobility. in the last five, six years we haven't seen that. it is true the rich are getting richer and the poor getting poorer under this president's policies. >> his latest idea is to raise minimum wage. he claims there's absolutely no evidence that doing so costs jobs. even "the washington post" gave him two pinocchios for that one. doesn't research consistently show emplo
bargain -- >> it will not be the grand bargain. they will be looking at tax hikes, but not looking at significant cuts to medicare, medicaid, or for social security, which are areas republicans say need something to be done. they are looking at a pretty small thing, over whether to have a federal employees contribute more to their retirement plans. democrats are trying to keep them lower than republicans. getting looking at funds by selling a spectrum that will be sold to telephone companies. they are looking at a small touch deal that would replace some of the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that were launched in 2011. that was part of a different edge process. host: why can't there be such an desk something like a grand bargain? guest: the two parties can agree. are not willing to cut medicaid, and republicans are not willing to do tax hikes. paul ryan and patty murray basically decided that they were not going to go after the sacred cow of the other party. they were just going to it something that was possible, and they decided by looking at all these failed attempts in t

prominent taxes were slashed for the wealthiest while investments, things that made us all richer like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither. and for certain period of time time we could ignore this weakening economic foundation in part because more families were relying on two earners as women enter the workforce. we took on more debt financed by a juiced up housing market but when the music stopped and the crisis hit, millions of families were stripped of whatever cushion they had left. and the result is an economy that has become her family on equal and families that are more insecure. i will just give you a few statistics. since 1979 when i graduated from high school, our productivity was up to more than 90%. but the income of the typical family has increased by less than 8%. since 1979 our economy has more than doubled in size but most of that growth has been flowing to a fortunate few. the top 10% no longer takes in one third of our income. it now takes half whereas in the past the average ceo made about 20 to 30 times the income of the average worker, today's ceos n
